Colombia came into the match in third place, they end it as Group H winners. The match dragged in a number of places with Colombia unable to get more than one touch inside the Senegalese box in the first half. But they kept threatening from set-pieces and it was a corner that led to their goal. The sniper-like Juan Quintero swung it in and Yerry Mina managed to slam it in with his head. Senegal never got back from that and with their exit ends the African challenge in this World Cup. Colombia will be worried about James Rodriguez, who was subbed off in the first half.
